I see there is two types of surge tanks.
one just uses the overflow hose(from Rad) going into the side of the surge tank with a 15 lb cap on radiator and a 22 lb on tank. the other has the same overflow going to surge tank and a 1/2 in hose going to suction side of the water pump. a 15 lb cap on rad and a 22lb on surge tank.which system is better to use here in the desert.or what are the differances between the two.

personaly i have never heard of anybody running a surge tank on a racecar around here i just put a 22 lbs cap on the rad and go with that if it's getting hot enought to blow by the cap you got bigger problems that a serge tank can't fix.i use the overflo line to help incase i do blow all the water out somebody from the pits can wave me in and hopefully save the motor cause if the water is gone your temp gauge will not read right
